Edgetech to launch Simulated Divided Light at Glassex


Edgetech’s latest product Simulated Divided Light

Leading warm edge specialist Edgetech will be launching its new Simulated Divided Light (SDL) at Glassex. Designed for the growing astragal bar market, the SDL is a no-metal structural foam system designed to give the appearance of individual panes of glass within a sealed unit and provide a warm edge solution as a replacement for standard metal duplex or integral bars. Unlike standard aluminium products, SDL allows for compression of the sealed unit caused by temperature changes and virtually eliminates the risk of stress cracks normally associated with rigid bars.

SDL’s unique patented fixing system also cuts wastage and problem call backs by ensuring accurate placement which prevents operator error when jointing to the spacer bar. The SDL system can be used on manual or automated manufacturing lines and greatly reduces production time. SDL also uses tried and tested Super Spacer technology to dramatically reduce condensation.

Edgetech’s Managing Director Andy Jones comments: “We are delighted to be launching our Simulated Divided Light at Glassex. Manufacturers, fabricators and installers will be able to see the benefits it offers and the difference it makes when used in sealed units. Unlike metal bars, SDL reflects the colour of the frame to enhance the traditional aesthetics of the window so manufacturers and fabricators can now offer a thermally efficient, high performance, aesthetically pleasing traditional style window”.

SDL can be seen on Edgetech’s ‘Taking the Stress out of window energy ratings’ stand at Glassex, no. G120, Hall 17.
